With 380 posts in the last year’s topic, I decided to open a new one for 2018. I sow tomato seeds in mid-late December, this is why I started this topic now (kind of early for most people).
Last year I grew 16 varieties. This year I decided to keep 8 from the last year and add 8 new ones.
Keepers from the last year:
Arbuznyi — a black/striped tomato, not very productive, but unique taste, which I like very much.
Black from Tula — a great black tomato, I like it more than Black Krim.
Black Giant — a black tomato with very good taste, quite early for a large tomato.
Paul Robeson — a black tomato with excellent taste.
Pruden’s Purple — an excellent dark pink tomato.
Bear Claw — our favorite pink tomato, excellent taste.
Stump of the World — a large pink beafsteak tomato, very good.
Kellogg’s Breakfast — the only yellow tomato (out of three from the last year) I decided to keep. It was a bit later than the rest, which is good to spread out the peak of production.
New additions for 2018:
Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye
Neves Azorean Red
As you can see, I decided to add two cherry tomatoes (Black Cherry and SunGold), mainly to start the production earlier. I would appreciate if you have comments on any of these varieties.
